Technology and Magic

Sitting at lunch today and the very loud conversation at the next table is on tips for cell phone – “AT&T says you should turn your phone off once a day so that you will reconnect to a closer tower.”

I resisted the impulse to ask “what if you are driving along between cities, at what point in the drive should you recycle your phone? When you start or when you arrive?”

If you just think it through this is not logical. But most people don’t take the time to think through what they are told by “authority figures” even if that authority figure is just a voice on a phone.
